>> two minutes till the top of the hour. quick headlines now. twinkies on the auction block. too much p.d.a. can kill your relationship. a new survey finds more than a quarter of women don't like cuddling in than a quarter of women
3:01am
>> do you think your dog understands? arthur says yes, they do. mike says our beagle makes noise in the room to distract us and tries to drink our coffee when we go to investigate the noise. thank you to everyone who responded. we appreciate it. >> i think my dog does the same thing. he knows what he's up to. >> "fox & friends" starts now. have a great day. >>gretchen: good morning. it's tuesday, february 12, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing part of your day today. fox news alert. first reports of an earthquake. it was actually north korea detonating a nuclear device. why is president obama hours away from announcing cuts now to our own nuclear arsenal? breaking details for you straight ahead. >>steve: meet the
3:02am
shooter, the navy seal who took down osama bin laden setting the record straight and making a shocking claim. he has been betrayed by the u.s. federal government and can barely afford to feed his family. he's jobless. his story this morning. >>brian: how much would you pay to take these guitars from rock n'roll moves history to your living room? the chance is coming your way as "fox & friends" starts right now. >>gretchen: breaking news because it set off earthquake warnings but it was actually a north korean nuclear test. it all happened hours ago and now the world son alert. kelly wright is on this story for us live in washington right now. good morning, kelly. >> good morning to all of you this morning. president obama calls north korea's latest nuclear test a highly provocative act.
3:03am
north korea announcing it detonated a miniature nuclear device successfully at a northeastern test site. the u.n. confirms the blast was larger than previous tests measuring 4.9 on the richter stkaeul. in a statement -- richter scale. in a statement released through the white house, the president says these provocations do not make israel more secure. far from achieving its stated goal of becoming a strong nation, north korea has instead isolated and impoverished its people through weapons of mass destruction. north korea's actions today come on the heels of launching an intercontinental ballistic missile test last december. south korean experts tell fox news they are very concerned about the north's latest nuclear tests. they fear the north is moving towards a weaponization program that could threaten the entire international community. >> it is a very provocative act that undermines a
3:04am
region of peace and stability. i think it would be critical for us to coordinate very closely with you and our colleagues in south korea going forward. >> china, which provides aid to north korea, also issued a statement very critical of the north's testing. china is urging north korea to honor its commitment to denuclearization and refrain from any move that may further worsen the situation. president obama is calling on the international community and the six-party nations in the u.n. security council to take decisive steps now to curb north korea's nuclear ambitions. >>gretchen: the u.s. security council will hold that emergency meeting this morning on this nuclear test. i believe it will be a 9 a.m. eastern time. what are they going to do unless they get russia on board and some of these other countries? >>brian: one thing that would get their attention and china's attention is if
3:05am
you get nuclear weapons to south korea and japan. at one point we have to say we have to be able to protect our friends, we're under treaty. that is the only way we can do it. what's unbelievable is tonight at 9:00 there will be a state of the union in which the president will say i'm going to cut our nuclear arsenal by 40%. isn't that good. somebody get vladimir putin on the phone. hope he does the same thing. >>steve: are you saying on the day those crazy people in north korea do another atomic weapons test over there we're going to cut from, right now we have 1,700 atomic weapons of some sort. and the president is obligated by the start treaty to bring it down to, i believe, 1,550 by 2018. but he would like to go from 1,700, which is current, to 1,000 atomic weapons. and he could do that if he could get the russians on board. >>gretchen: you have to wonder if there might be a
3:06am
slight tweak in his speech tonight after what has happened this morning. you also have to wonder whether or not north korea knew that he was going to talk about this in advance. it wasn't that much of a secret and that that is why they fired off what they did just a few hours ago. i mean, they're very shrewd people there. their dictator is a shrewd young man who wants national, international attention. you have to wonder which one it was. >>brian: i don't think the guy is shrewd. he looks like a knucklehead actually. >>gretchen: the military people behind him? >>brian: i don't think it's in north korea's ben fist for us to have -- benefit for us to have a lot of nuclear weapons. what is most intriguing is they have minimum tourized them four months after they shot off a missile which i think will be fascinating to see them try to cut missile defense. you've got to bolster missile defense, get this
3:07am
thing working. one missile breaks through, goodbye, california. >>steve: the smaller the north koreans are able to make their weapons, the easier it is to shoot it somewhere. this plan, if the president does call for nuclear reduction even grander than before, it would be in keeping with his ultimate goal which is a nuclear-free planet. >>gretchen: the other interesting thing to point out is this reduction from 1,700 to 1,000 warheads is part of a mutual agreement, if it can be secured with russia, in that particular meeting he had with medvedev where he in secret didn't know the microphones were on and said after the election i'll have more flexibility. you have to wonder about that statement in light of this agreement as well. let's get to other stories making headlines. 4,000 people stranded on a cruise ship will have to wait another day to be rescued. carnival triumph lost power. it now has to be towed to
3:08am
alabama. the ship won't arrive until thursday. passengers are sleeping on deck with limited access to bathrooms, water and food. this is the third time the carnival triumph has had engine problems. ex-cop charged with killing three people going international. we're learning christopher dorner may have had an accomplice who helped him flee to mexico. records show he tried to steal a boat and told the captain he was taking it to mexico. investigators found his wallet and i.d. card at a point of entry at the u.s. border with mexico. speculation on who will replace pope benedict the 16th when he retires next month. on the list, a 63-year-old cardinal from brazil. only cardinals under the age of 80 can vote for the successor, which means 118
3:09am
are eligible. president obama presenting an army veteran with our nation's highest military award. the medal of honor. he was at a combat outpost in afghanistan in 2009 when 300 taliban fighters launched an ambush. he managed to call air support that caught 30 insurgents and risked his life. >> there have been eight soldiers that didn't make it. for the rest of the team that fought valiantly and magnificently that day. i will forever be humbled by the bravery, the commitment to service and their loyalty to one another. >>gretchen: before the ceremony, romesha's son actually stole the show. the president's podium, he tried to climb on top of it and then dashed to the
3:10am
front row. >>steve: you know dr. ben carson was a keynote speaker at the national prayer breakfast last week. he is an esteemed neurosurgeon at johns hopkins tphe baltimore area. because it was a prayer breakfast, he took a look at the bible and applied some biblical teachings on where we are today. he talked about the national debt, health care and he talked about taxes. despite the way we're doing it right now, it really should be fair. why did he do that? here's the good doctor. >> somebody has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to the bullies. there is no question that he has advocated basically a policy of tax the rich. and i have advocated a policy that comes from the bible, which is a very fair policy of proportional taxation. if it was good enough for god, why wouldn't it be good enough for us? the minute you deviate away
3:11am
from that, you begin to get into all kinds of biases. and one could legitimately make the argument that the rich pay too many taxes. the top 1% pays 37% of the taxes. the top 5%, 59% of the taxes. but they don't make that much of the income. one could make that argument. it depends on your philosophical disposition which argument you're going to make. but you take those arguments away as soon as you go to a proportional tax. i believe that's the reason god did it. >>brian: he says god writes in the bible that you tithe 10%. it doesn't mean if you're a zillionaire you make it 20%. if people say you're not giving enough in, i thought $1 billion is a lot of money. you make $20 billion, you give $2 billion. the whole time i found fascinating during the
3:12am
20-minute speech, you get to see the president, senator sessions and ben carson. the president for awhile looked like he was texting, then he looked tired. >>steve: a little squirmish. >>gretchen: some people criticized dr. ben carson. was this the right forum and as a physician what did he know about taxes? he responded to that question as well. >> why did you take it upon yourself to go beyond medical policy and talk about tax policy? >> one of the things i also said during the speech is there will be some people who say you're a doctor, a neurosurgeon, you should be sticking to that. i mentioned the fact that five physicians signed the declaration of independence and were involved in the framing of the constitution and the bill of rights and several other things. there's absolutely no reason at all that physicians, scientists shouldn't be involved in things that affect all of us.
3:13am
we're people who have learned how to make decisions on facts, empirical data rather than on ideology. >>brian: really faulted lawyers. said there are too many lawyers involved in the entire government. on that speech, 1.2 million views. when was the prayer breakfast? thursday or friday? >>steve: i don't remember. his speech, the keynote, was so effective, the "wall street journal" had a headline that said on the op-ed page, "ben carson for president." >>gretchen: he could probably do it too because he's certainly come from a lot of adversity in his life and risen to the top. coming up on "fox & friends," he took down bin laden. now he can't feed his own family. why isn't the former navy hero getting the treatment he deserves from our government? >>brian: hollywood rarely get it right when it comes to faith. how did they do with the movie lincoln?
3:14am
the real story about lincoln and his religion as we get closer to president's day. next.

3:17am
>> 204 years ago today our 16th president was born. we're talking about president abraham lincoln. while much has been made about lincoln's abilities to take on the big issues like abolishing slavery, not much has been made about his belief in god and how he relied on faith until his last breath. joining us is the author of lincoln's battle with god, steven mansfield. good morning to you. a lot of people don't realize when lincoln was a young man, he was able to recite sermons as if he were reading a teleprompter. >> he could mimic the preacher's antics, he could
3:18am
step on a stump and reenact the whole sunday sermon. >>steve: he went through a long period in his time where he was an atheist. >> he was the village atheist for years. part of it was his father was heavily religious and he rejected his father. >>steve: in the book, you talk a little bit about how you -- as you look at his spiritual journey, compare his first inaugural address versus his second inaugural address. >> by the time he comes to the presidency, he believes in god but he believes the issue of the civil war is in human hands. four years later he's seen too much, too much suffering, too much not in human control. so his view is this war is a judgment of god on the nation for slavery. we have to deal with him. it is a profound progression from one speech to the other. >>steve: what do you think was going on? >> he had made a slow, painful journey back to faith from those atheist
3:19am
days. a lot had to do with the deaths he suffered. he was sort of depressive and dark. by the time he got to the presidency,ible he believed in god -- i think he believed in god but i still think he thought he was in control, that lincoln could control events. four years of war proved he couldn't. >>steve: come oscar time very shortly, the "lincoln" movie is up for a number of awards. it has really brought a spotlight to mr. lincoln. it is interesting, steven spielberg did get the religious component at the end of his life right, didn't he? >> he did. there's no question that at the end of his presidency he was planning not to go back to springfield but go abroad, perhaps visit jerusalem. he was talking about faith. in the version of his final words that mary lincoln gave us, he's saying i want to go abroad. i want to visit jerusalem and i'd like to walk in the footsteps of the savior which is not the way we
3:20am
traditionally heard it. >>steve: read that for us. >> we will go abroad among strangers where i can rest. we will visit the holy land and see those places by the footsteps of the savior. >>steve: that's the last thing he said? >> all we've heard through the textbooks is they were being very flirty and mrs. lincoln says what will this young couple think who is with us. we're flirting. he said they'll think nothing of it at all. mrs. lincoln said later, no, we were talking about going to jerusalem and his final words were i want nothing more than to walk in the footsteps of the savior. different from what we've heard. >>steve: all in the book "lincoln's battle with god." steven mansfield, great to have you. 19 minutes after the top of the hour. he is the navy seal who took out the world's most wanted terrorist. so why is osama bin laden's killer out of work and struggling to pay his bills? you're not going to believe this story.
3:21am
>> and how do you know if that headache is a migraine or something that could actually kill you? the medical aid's team dr. samadi is here with the four symptoms you should never ignore. ♪ if loving you is wrong ♪ i don't wanna be right [ record scratch ] what?! it's not bad for you. it just tastes that way.

3:25am
can't trust what you read on the label. a study finds the dosage sofpb wrong. some only contain 9% of the doses while others have up to 140%. none are dangerous but some don't have enough vitamins to help. is there a doctor in the house, gretch? >>gretchen: funny you should ask, brian. there's one sitting next to me. we know the symptoms that warrant a trip to the doctor's office like severe chest pain or even choking. but what about those less obvious symptoms that we sometimes ignore? joining me now with four health signs that should raise a red flag, dr. david samadi of the medical a team. if you feel any of these, get help starting with severe head pain, the worst headache of your life. >> this is very serious. a lot of people may have a migraine headache and it goes away. but if you have a throbbing headache like a belt around
3:26am
your head, you've got to see somebody. we were talking about a case where someone in my family ended up getting an m.r.i. and they found a tumor in the head. there is no room in the brain. it could be an aneurysm or a mass. don't dismiss that. severe headache that doesn't go away, go to the emergency room and make sure they investigate it. >>gretchen: what about a throbbing tooth? people say it is a little uncomfortable, i'll let it go for awhile. >> see your doctor. everything starts with the teeth being very sensitive when you drink something hot or cold. that's probably a crack in the enamel. then bacteria can get in and you can form an abscess. that is a big deal. by seeing a doctor early on you can save your tooth. and make sure you go in and not dismiss symptoms. these are severe symptoms. we're not talking about a little pain here and there. about if you have sharp pain in your teeth, see your dentist. >>gretchen: what about the sharp pain in your
3:27am
side? many people would think appendicitis; right? >> as a surgeon, when you go to the e.r. to see a doctor, you want to divide the abdomen into four quadrants, right side and left side. usually the right lower quadrant that is usually appendicitis. in women it could be an ovarian mass. upper quadrant usually gallstones. left side is all bowel, inflammation of the bowels. the left upper part is pancreas. every one of them has a different meaning. severe sharp pain that doesn't go away, you've got to go to the emergency room. it's not some irritable bowel disease or gas. see your doctor. very important. actually when you see them early, you can prevent any kind of perforation and getting infection in the abdomen. very important. >>gretchen: that was very helpful, the quadrants. the back pain with tingling toes? >> the key word right there
3:28am
is the tingling in the toes. that kind of feeling. a lot of bad pain, we see millions of people have this, once you start having tingling in the toes or hands, that's when some sort of of neuropathy or nerve damage is happening. maybe the disk is pressing on the nerves. you want to see your orthopedic surgeon. that is something you don't want to take some advil and go to bed. getting an m.r.i. making sure there is no pressure on that could prevent a lot of devastating issues. >>gretchen: dr. samadi, thank you so much. next on the rundown, he took down bin laden. now he can't even pay his bills. why isn't the former navy seal getting the hero treatment he deserves from our government? >> the president about to use another executive order. is this just another power grab? we're going to report and you decide. first, happy birthday to a great singer. michael mcdonald. he is all over my ipod.

>> maybe it's me, but have you seen the promos for the state of the union address tomorrow? i think they're trying to
3:33am
target that grammy audience, that younger demo. show the promo for the state of the union. >> tomorrow night it's the annual state of the union. but before you sit down to watch president obama speak to our nation, check out the e-state of the union special with ryan seacrest. watch them walk their fingers down the cam and check out the sexy fingers of the night. only on e. >> harry reid, who are you wearing? >>gretchen: hate to see it, it might get the younger ones actually. watch the state of the union. >>brian: about 40 million expected to watch. right to your headlines, president obama planning to bypass congress. he's set to issue a series of executive orders tomorrow, what companies must do to protect computers from cyber attacks. he's got more executive

nine pounds of marijuana in two metal lunch boxes filled with $130,000 in cash in her house. neighbors said they could not believe this. they thought all the visitors to her home were just taking care of her. they were in a way. kind of. >>steve: he's responsible for taking down the world's most dangerous terrorist but now one seal team 6 member is speaking out saying the navy abandoned him after he killed osama bin laden saying -- quote -- "the shooter will discover soon enough that when he leaves after 16 years in the navy, his body filled with scar tissue, argt -- arthritis, tendonitis, eye damage and blown disks, here is what he gets from an ungrateful nation. nothing. >>gretchen: phil bronstein joins us now. this is getting a lot of attention, the article in
3:36am
"esquire" magazine. you believe that you have been having frequent meetings, that you know the shooter of osama bin laden. why are you so sure that he was actually the shooter? >> the story itself progressed over a period of time. it started about a year, a little less than a year and a half ago with some phone calls, mutual friends, introductions and really developed over time into ao relationship where he trusted me throughout that relationship and we later met in person and have since had many, many more meetings in person, talked a lot on the phone. all along i was asking both him and people around him for verification. because when i originally met him, i was introduced to him as this is the guy. i talked to other seals. i talked to other retired seals, people who were on the mission. there was a dinner party in washington about a week
3:37am
after the mission with seals who were on the mission. he has a mentor who was in the seals and who went on to the c.i.a., who got a call two hours after the raid from some high government official saying it was your guy. >>steve: it's the guy that you talked to and you spent a lot of time hearing his story. why is he coming out right now, phil? >> well, i think -- the story evolved over time. it was really a story talking about his experiences. it became clear to me that he's guys are tough, resill kwrapbt, resource -- resilient, all sorts of things. but they are portrayed as super human as opposed to human with great skills. i wanted to portray through this guy, this group of guys who do all the extraordinary things they are asked to do by the government, by all of us to keep us safe and secure and at the same time talk about the kind of support they're
3:38am
not getting from the government, frankly, and the private sector. >>brian: they don't do it for the money. they don't do it for the fame. they don't feel comfortable receiving it. but in any of these guys on that mission, i imagine, would have pulled the trigger had they been in that spot. what you discovered is they make about $60,000. if they get out before 20 years, they get no pension, no health care. in this case this guy couldn't do that job anymore. he had a couple of years left. but this is something, the demands on their body, it could not be considered a normal service. >> i think that after all those years -- keep in mind, it's not just a decade and two decades worth of combat. it's constant deployment, jumping out of planes all the time, going on deadly missions where your job is to track people down and kill them. this happens year after year after year, the longest set of wars we've had in our nation's
3:39am
history. and we're asking more and more of this particular group. >>gretchen: a lot's been made about the headline. this is such a lengthy, interesting article. but a lot has been made about the fact that you write that he received no pension because he left before 20 years of service. no health care. his marriage falls apart. some of our e-mailers and other readers said he could have had health care if he stayed for 20 years with a desk job or if he got this five-year program with the department of veterans affairs for health care. how do you respond to that? did he not know about that? >> yes. there's a five-year program that president bush signed into law in 2008. five years of free health care. it's not health insurance. it does not cover your family. and there's a discussion and debate about how much it actually does cover. in fact, a source in the v.a. told me in terms of the dental benefits, you almost have to be a lawyer to understand it. it's true he didn't know
3:40am
that he had those five years available to him. he had briefings at the seal command as he was leaving with people from the v.a. and others counseling him. and he said no one ever brought it up. what did he get? he did not get health care. he certainly didn't get health care that covered his family. he certainly didn't get a pension. and he certainly didn't get protection that these guys feel might be appropriate. >>steve: the pentagon is really -- you know, you detail very astutely in your piece, they have fallen down in helping these guys transition to a new job. when this guy left, somebody said you might be able to get a job driving a truck, a beer truck in milwaukee. that's the kind of work you should think of. financially, his family would be better off money-wise if he would have been killed in service. >> that actually came from another seal team six member i spoke with who is still in seal team six who is about to go in deployment. he said because the navy is
3:41am
very generous about -- the military is very generous about life insurance. he said figure over on -- he said if i go over on my next deployment and get killed i know my kids will go to school and my wife will be taken care of. but if i come back and leave before my 20, i'll have nothing. >>brian: there's a few things that come out. one, the guy came back, a lot of people in the white house are going to be writing books. one guy writes a book and he's making a lot of money but he's not about to keep it because he's being sued by everyone because he's allegedly the guy who goes by a pseudo name, he allegedly gave up secrets of the mission, which we know there are more secrets in the movie than there are to the mission. >> i saw the retirement of leon panetta, the ceremony the other day. he was joking, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff was up there joking about "zero dark thirty."
3:42am
almost everything about this raid has entered into our lore. there are no new actual facts. >>gretchen: i found a lot of new interesting facts in your article. i think everyone should read it. one of which stuck in my mind is i don't think the american public understands how all of these 23 guys and the alternates there thought they were going to die that night. they all planned to die. your guy bought a $350 pair of prada sunglasses because he thought this is my last thing. he kissed his kids, thought it was the last. he called his dad. he thought of a quote from president bush after 9/11, freedom will be attacked by a faceless coward and freedom will be defended. he thought he was going to die. that is what i took away from your article. >> you're absolutely right. there was a scene that he describes where he's sitting on his kit as they are about to go to abbottabad and do the raid.
3:43am
he's writing this letter to his kid. he describes tears hitting the page because he's writing a letter he wants them to read when they're much older. he says i hope we were successful, but if we weren't, know this is what we were trying to do. he gave them to an intelligence guy. usually they give them to somebody else who would be on the mission. on these missions they don't all usually get killed. this time he gave it to someone who was not going on the mission precisely because he felt they were walking into an ambush. >>brian: he also said he appreciated president obama said my guys are going to get rescued, we're not going to negotiate their release. >> he did appreciate that. >>steve: phil, real pleasure to chat with you. if you haven't read it, it's at esquire.com. phil bron stein thank you very much. let's hope the pentagon does something to help these guys transition. >> and the private sector. >>brian: it's not just about one guy. it's about all these guys. the seal team six was
3:44am
chosen for the mission. everyone served and everybody that serves in the military, when they get out part of the reason they are having a hard time transitioning is because there is nowhere to go. >>steve: this guy has a lot of injuries and is stuck in red tape at the v.a. i think it's been eight months. he's not been able to get clarity. it is not right. >>gretchen: next on the rundown, place a bet at the casino without ever leaving the hotel bed? the hotel bed? that's coming up. the hotel bed? that's coming up. how do you keep an older car running like new? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you that you need your oil changed

>>steve: quick headlines for you on this tuesday morning. another female member of president obama's inner circle calling it quits. karen mills is stepping down as the head of the small business administration. guests at one atlantic city hotel soon won't have to get out of bed to place a bet. one hotel plans to become the first in the country for the super lazy to set up electronic gambling through tv sets in the room. you don't have to go to the casino. that changes everything, brian. >>brian: a group of senators have proposed forming -- get this -- a so-called assassination court. the court would review a drone target and whether he or she should be taken out. in his four years in office president obama has been using drones more than 350 times. does the president need to
3:49am
be reined in? is it possible for this court to function effectively? let's ask fox news senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. are you for this panel? >> i'm not for this panel. i think the panel is consistent with the constitution at all. the very idea of a panel that somehow judges, meeting in secret, could authorize the president or someone the president designates to kill people presumes the president and the panel have do this. they don't. the declaration of independence guarantees your right to live. it guarantees your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. the constitution says if the government wants to interfere with your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because it believes you've done something wrong, it can only do so through due process. due process means declaring war on a foreign country or putting somebody on trial. if a person is driving in a truck in a desert in yemen, no matter his intentions, he's not actively engaged
3:50am
in warfare against the united states of america, it is absolutely criminal for the president to kill that person and for a judge to authorize it. the authority doesn't exist and it's denied expressly by the constitution. >>brian: how about this? if you have proof -- which you do -- you know that he inspired and trained the underwear bomber. you know he inspired has san at fort hood. you've seen the letter, seen the paper trail. just because he was born in america, he shouldn't be allowed to live. >> that defies the constitution because the constitution makes no exception for the government shall not take your life without a jury trial. >>brian: having said that, isn't this like the fisa court where there will be a check on the president to present his case before they kill? >> this is a transfer of the power to kill. from nowhere -- the president has seized it himself. he's given himself permission to kill through judges meeting in secret. i'm not sure which is worse. by putting the burden on the judges, the president takes the heat off himself. let me tell you why the
3:51am
president is killing. because he doesn't have the courage to address the issue of guantanamo bay which he said he would close and he hasn't. because he doesn't have the courage to put these people on trial who are in guantanamo bay, which he said he would and he hasn't. he thinks it would be easier politically to kill them. he might be right. it might be easier to do so politically. but morally and legally it's reprehensible. >>brian: he only captured one. john brennan brought that up, but he didn't have the number. >> how could brennan not know these things? >>brian: it is unbelievable what he forgets when he wants a job. judge napolitano, thanks so much. ten minutes before the top of the hour. coming up, the car you're about to buy could have been part of a recall. but guess what? new information shows it may have not been fixed. what you need to know. how much would you pay to take these guitars straight from rock n'roll history to your living room? wait till you see how much. next. next. and who used to have them.

3:56am
2013. one called "gone too soon" and one called"music gives back." we brought a few pieces from the "music gives back" tour. >> brian may, guitarist from queen, let's start with that. >> this is brian's guitar. this is brian's gild red special. it was built for brian. it is a replica of a guitar he built with his father when he was 15 years old. he used this on the video "one vision." >>gretchen: what about the keith townsend guitar? >> this guitar is the second piece of memorabilia in hard rock's collection. eric clapton donated a guitar on a whether i am. pete townsend saw it and sent it over with a note and said mine is as good as eric's any day. get it on the wall.

>> gretchen: good morning, everybody. it's tuesday, february 12, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing part of your day with us today. this morning, happening right now, north korea making good on a promise, detonate ago nuclear device. we are live with the very latest. >> brian: all right. steve. >> steve: meet the shooter, brian. the navy seal who took down osama bin laden setting the record straight and making a shocking claim. he has been betrayed by the federal government and can barely afford to feed his family. steve? lightning strikes the vatican as the pope resigns. this morning, we've got the odds on who will take his place. is america in the running?
4:02am
"fox & friends" hour two, brian, for this tuesday starts right now. >> gretchen: are you going to say anything? >> brian: not yet. >> gretchen: we start with a fox news alert. as the world is on alert, north korea conducting its third nuclear test overnight. the therapy of the house foreign affairs committee just weighed in. he says the obama administration must replace its failed north korean policy with one that is energetic, creative and focused on crippling the kim regime's military capabilities through stringent sanctions. senior foreign affairs correspondent greg palkot has the late nest london. you moved from the pope's story to this world crisis now, greg. >> yeah, crazy week. the world, in fact, got a bit more dangerous overnight. u.n. officials, i was speaking
4:03am
to a few minutes ago, confirmed to me that they believe the north korea has tested yet another nuclear device. but most importantly, they tell me this device is twice as powerful as the one they detonated in 2009. they base that on seismic measurements they're taking from the test site. north korea today claiming they have tested a smaller, more sophisticated device, which means, according to my contacts in north korea and korea that i've been speaking to, this could be better put on top of a missile. remember, in december, north korea had that successful intercontinental ballistic test. one expert describes it as an important step toward weaponnization and another said it shows that north korea wants to marry both programs, the missile program and the nuclear weapon program. they have not stopped their propaganda blast. in the past couple hours, they say this is a first response. they say that it will be second and third response. they don't specify exactly what they will be. but they openly talk about the
4:04am
united states as their enchristmas eve that this is a self-defense measure. the white house overnight weighing in as well. they call this a provocative measure. the prime minister of japan in the neighboring country to north korea calling it a grave threat. just wrapping up, remember this is the first nuclear test of the new young leader in north korea, kim kim jong-un. this could be a test of his leadership and it's important to note the timing. on saturday is birthday his father, former dictator kim jung-il of the just as important, i am told the timing of it in terms of the united states. today president obama's state of the union address. tonight they have done this before. they have tied it in to united states events. they could be doing that today just to get attention. back to you. >> brian: is it still the belief that china could end this tomorrow, that they have leverage over that country and maybe all of their outrage is lip service? >> they would like to try, brian. they've come out and criticized
4:05am
this. but as you say, that is what they're saying. what they also want is a buffer between china and south korea. they don't really want north korea to fall right into the lap of the united states. so yes, it's two sides of the coin. they want stability. they'd rather not north korea act out like this, but they also like that little bit of a safety blank -- blanket and don't want north korea to become a democratic ally of the united states any time soon. >> steve: by the way, north korea is in real trouble now because the united nations security council will have an emergency meeting at 9:00 a.m. eastern time of the what are they going to do, put them in the time out room? >> brian: don't they start every day at 9:00 o'clock? emergency meetings are at 6. >> gretchen: 4,000 people stranded on a cruise ship will have to wait another day now to get back on solid ground. carnival lost power after an engine fire. it took it so far north t has to
4:06am
be towed to alabama. the ship will arrive thursday. passengers are sleeping on decks with limited access to bathroom, water and food. this is not exactly the cruise you dreamed of. >> brian: not although. >> gretchen: the third time this exact ship had engine problems. manhunt for the fugitive ex cop charged with killing three people. we're learn example may have had an accomplice who helped him flee to mexico. investigators raided a motel in tijuana, but there was no evidence dorner had been there. holy smokes, just hours after pope benedict xvi made the announcement he's stepping down as pope, lightning strikes saint peters basilica. we're learning more why he's resigning this morning. this vatican spokesperson revealing he had heart surgery three years ago to replace his pacemaker. now speculation underwaite about who will replace him. one of the top contenders, 64-year-old peter cardinal turkson from ghana.
4:07am
he would be the first african pope. also on the list, 63-year-old carl in addition shu are, r from brazil. david letterman u might say he never looked so good. >> number 5, alyssa miller. >> please list the three most recent employers' measurements. >> number two, katherine webb. >> how would brant musberger describe you? >> and the number 1, kate upton. >> where is the strangest place you found sand? >> gretchen: the sports illustrated issue hits news stands today. one of the models will be here live on "fox & friends". >> brian: last night was there a brig brawl again? >> steve: probably. hey, we had an interview with phil broken stein, who did a
4:08am
piece for he is require magazine. the man who killed osama bin laden, look at that, is screwed. it tells the story about how this guy has no job right now, no insurance, no pension, and he really didn't get any help transitioning from the military and the navy to private life. in fact, at one point one of the higher ups said, you know, you're looking for work? i think i know somebody who can get you a job driving a beer truck in milwaukee. >> brian: part of his cover, his family has to change their name. they want to get his name offment not that they want to get away from him, but they want to make sure his family won't be targeted. and they can't go to the base for protection because he's technically not in. as alumni, you can go to college campus u about not a military base. he's eligible for some financial health care. he's been pursuing that for a couple years. he's not gotten any progress.
4:09am
but his family is not covered. >> steve: he thought -- when he left the military, he asked about health care and he was never told he had an opportunity to have it four or five years. that's where a pension, you need 20 years to get a pension. but his body was simply worn out. he had been in it for 16 years and he couldn't take it anymore. >> gretchen: so here is a quote on the life after the osama bin laden raid from that navy seal. i left seals on friday. my health care for me and my family stopped at midnight friday night. i asked if there was some transition from my tri care to blue cross, blue shield, they said no. you're out of the service. your coverage is over. which is startling because apparently there is this five-year program through the department of veterans affairs. but this navy seal claiming and through the interview this morning, claiming he was never told about that. by the way, it would not cover his family. just him personally. his disability claim is somewhere stuck in the red tape. i've had some e-mails from other people who i've served who have said that this is a big huge
4:10am
problem. that right now, eight-month delay for v.a. benefits. unfortunately, that's not unusual. he said the processing time has increased from six to 18 months. >> steve: this particular guy has neck, back and eye injuries and the average time to process a claim through the v.a. is nine months. the red tape is overwhelming. we've got to take care of our veterans better. here is a statement from the navy in response to this article. quote, we take seriously the safety and security of our people, as well as our responsibility to assist sailors making a transition to civilian life. without more information about this particular case, it would be difficult to determine the degree to which our transition programs succeed. the navy knows who this guy is. >> brian: phil bronstein talked about what he's looking at now in the future. >> these guys are not jason bourn. they're tough, they're resilient, they're resourceful. they're all sorts of things. really they're often portrayed
4:11am
as super human as opposed to human with great skills. and so i wanted to portray, through this guy, this group of people, this group of guys who do these extraordinary things that they're asked to do by the government, by all of us, to keeps safe and secure, and at the same time, talk about what they're not getting, kind of support they're not getting both from the government, frankly, and the private sector. he did not get health care. he certainly didn't get health care that covered his family. he certainly didn't get pension or protection that these guys feel might be appropriate. >> brian: important to point out, it's not just about him. it's about all of them. his wife went on to say, i honest israeli nobody i can go to and talk to. no more irrelevant think my -- i don't think my husband has gotten much for what he accomplished in his career. >> gretchen: the other important thing, i think everyone should read this article, it's startling, but they all thought they were going to die that night. they had been in missions before, it was dangerous. but this one in particular, they
4:12am
all thought they were going to die. it's a fascinating read if you get a chance. >> steve: 7:10 in new york city. coming up, one of the stars of the reality tv shows "storage wars" found dead. what happened? >> gretchen: it was a gutsy movement governor perry within to california to tell people there, your state stinks. the lieutenant governor of that state from california newsom here to respond next. don't take it out on us, kevin hey, it's me, progressive insurance. you know, from our 4,000 television commercials. yep, there i am with flo. hoo-hoo! watch it!

>> building a business is tough. but i hear building a business in california is next impossible. this is texas governor rick perry and i have a message for california businesses. come check out texas. >> brian: texas governor rick perry visiting california this week in order to try to poach businesses away from the golden state and bring them to texas. so many have already. back in 2011, nearly 60,000
4:16am
businesses took the governor's offer and made the move. so why are businesses fleeing california, which is probably one of the prettiest, most diverse states around? let's ask the state's lieutenant governor, gavin newsom. he's also pumped up about his brand-new book. lieutenant governor, welcome back. >> i feel vulnerable. rick perry is in my home city, san francisco, he's out there on what he calls his hunting trip. he comes out about every six months, casing our joint and trying to make a case for texas, which i appreciate. so he's in the game. he's competitive. but make no mistake, california and i say this with intimate appreciation, as a business owner with close to 1,000 employees, started 17 companies in san francisco, is by no means the worst place to do business. it's one of the best places to do business in the country. but i appreciate the energy of rick perry. >> brian: he's got zero taxes in terms of what the state charges. he does have a situation where he feels as though texas has
4:17am
become a magnet for businesses not just from california, but from everywhere, as well as florida. >> california is outpacing job creation in texas. texas has no taxes, like income taxes, but their property taxes that are over two times higher than the state of california. so before everybody gets their moving vans out, consider the property tax impacts. that said, california has more scientist, more engineers, more nobel laureates, more venture capital, more patents emanating from it. it is still an essential place to do business. >> brian: i lived there for a while. you start off with a huge lead to anybody that comes to visit. you got rural, you got urban, you have everything you want and you got this incredible scenery. but you're losing people. look at the unemployment in california. 9.8%. in texas, it's 6.1%. we go on. and talk about other things that could be attractive about texas is there is a sense there that there is a growth in these different cities. >> look, again, it's not -- >> brian: you're losing phil mickleson! >> phil backed off quickly on
4:18am
those comments. look, we can sit here and debate this thing all day. but what die admire is people in the game that are aggressive. rick perry doesn't need to be out there them hymn self. he put an austin chamber of commerce in our state. other states have done the same thing. $1.9 trillion a year economy. people will be aggressive. what california needs to do is acknowledge that and we've got to lean in and do the same thing. real economic development plan, address that very high unemployment rate, 1.8 million people without jobs in california, it is our number one issue because the number one issue of the past was the deficit and we brought that down. we're looking at a surplus. >> brian: you're sure you're not italian? >> irish italian. >> brian: lieutenant governor, you still may be losing phil mickleson. a lot of people said keep me away from keep book. my space will never last. you embraced it right away. that's really what this book is about. having your voice heard.
4:19am
>> no one wants things done to you or treated like a subject. that's how government works right now. you nut a dollar, you get taxes. or you get police, fire, health care. that's a framework of scarcity of limited choices. someone else is deciding what to provide in terms of services. so what this is about is real citizen engagement, co- production. it's about a division of labor. about whole new look at the way we can govern our he was in a much more dynamic way using these tools. >> brian: in what way can your voice be heard on twitter where it might not have been heard knocking on your door? >> or the town hall meeting. so we give specific examples all over the united states of where technology is really creating a framework of citizen engagement. but the bottom line is this, our government operates on the leading cutting edge of 1973 technology. we still have a bureaucracy that needs to be decentralized. we need to deinvolve that centralization to real involvement with citizens, co-producers again in the life
4:20am
of their cities, state and our nation. >> brian: that's what this book is about? >> about that. >> brian: no matter what age, you can hop be and be part of the social media madness. >> no doubt about it. >> brian: lieutenant government, thank you for getting up with us after a quick turn around from hannity last night. 18 minutes after the hour. next, the car you're about to buy may have been recalled, but no one bothered to fix it. what you need to know. please don't comment on my read, john. and "dancing with the stars" cheryl burke is here to show me some of her moves. but i'm already an established dancer. steve is the one that needs the help. hi. hi.

>> steve: time for news by the number. 2 million. that's how many recalled cars were sold last year without getting repaired. 2 million, according to car fact. 2 million includes cars also sold on-line. next, $2 billion. that's how much the federal government spent last year to provide cell phones to low income americans, but the fcc has found nearly half of the 6 million subscribers not eligible. that's embarrassing. 327. that's how many school buildings are sitting empty right now. they're up for sale and taxpayers are on the hook for maintenance and repairs until somebody buys them. >> gretchen: the stars, drama, suspense, it's all going to be coming back march 18 when new episodes of "dancing with the stars" debuts for the 16th season. can you believe it? who can we expect to be part of the all star cast? >> brian: cheryl burke knows and she's going to tell us right now. or this whole segment over. she's a champion in her own right, two-time "dancing with the stars" champion. are you pumped up or does it
4:25am
seem like the same thing all the time? >> i am pumped up. no one has confirmed, even the professional dancers don't know. but i am. it's so great to see new celebrities come on that have never danced before. i think just the process of seeing someone with no dance experience come on the show. it's pretty amazing. then all of a sudden they're dancers at the end of the show. >> steve: i remember in my mom and dad's generation, everybody was a great dancer. what happened? we have a society of a lot of lousy dancers. >> brian: we have a lot of smoke machines. >> steve: that hides everything. i'm telling you. >> brian: to blind you. here is the other thing about dancing, you could be a great dancer, but if you're not a great teacher, you're not going to be effective on the show. where does that gene come from to be able to teach? >> i started dancing at age four. for me, i have to relate to, like, emmitt smith or someone with no dance experience. and you just have to mak you highlight what they're great at doing and just show their
4:26am

4:47am
economic council, gene sperling. good morning to you. >> good morning, thanks for having us. >> gretchen: give us the 20 second preview. what are we going to hear tonight? >> you're going to hear the focus on what we can do working together in bipartisan way to strengthen the middle class because first that's our goal for economic policy. but we also think that's the engine of future economic growth. a stronger middle class, better educated, working in manufacturing, innovation, entrepreneurship, small business. these are the things that drive further economic growth. we've made a lot of progress since the deep recession of 2009. but this president is going to make very clear we have a lot further to go on job creation, on bringing down the deficit and investing in our people. >> brian: so here we are starting a year five in the first term. the president goes in, saying that we had zero growth in the last quarter and unemployment went up to 7.9. we did a poll here at fox news.
4:48am
does government have a spending problem? 83% say yes. 14% say no. nancy pelosi says we don't. what does the white house think? >> no, we believe you absolutely have to bring down spending. you have to do it in a balanced way. so three points. one, we actually have cut 2 1/2 trillion dollars over the last two years. it hasn't always been pretty, but we've actually done it in a bipartisan way. about two to three of spending cuts for every dollar in revenue. but we do have further to go. we need to get another -- at least 1.5, $1.8 trillion in debt reduction. that's what the president has left on the table, his offer to republican speaker of the house, john boehner. if we could do that, which would include both entitlement reform in savings and tax reform, that would also have revenue bring down our deficit. we would put our deficit on a path where the debt would be declining, as a percentage of our economy. that sounds a bit technical, but
4:49am
that's what people need to see to know this is a stable, strong investment climate to create jobs and invest in the future. >> steve: gene, you just mentioned the speaker of the house, john boehner. john boehner says that in dealing with the president, the president says john, we don't have the spending problem. we have a problem with the high cost of health care. you were just talk being how we've got to bring the cost of health care and other things down. you've had five years. why hasn't this administration addressed fixing entitlements with the republicans? because people want those programs to be there going forward, but right now, as you know, they're unsustainable. >> absolutely right. we need to reform programs like medicare in a way that's still protecting that basic guarantee. unfortunately, negotiations, speaker boehner decided to break off negotiations last december with the president. that was unfortunate because president obama had significant entitlement reform and very smart -- >> steve: what was president's entitlement reform?
4:50am
>> okay. the president had over 400 -- $400 billion in medicare reform on the table. if you look in his budget, does he things like ask for higher rebate from drug companies. he's willing to ask higher income medicare recipients to pay higher premiums to raise the deficit. and do things that overall improve the quality of care, so we're paying for better results and not simply how many tests you give. >> gretchen: gene, one of the big buzz words that we're hearing is going to be part of the speech tonight is investment, which is another word for stimulus. is the president really going to ask this country for more stimulus money? >> you know, i don't think that laying the foundation for future growth, which is what we've done by investing in basic research and what president eyes eisenhower did, is anything to discount in any way. what you need o do is be smart. you need to reduce spending. you need to reduce entitlement
4:51am
spending. but it doesn't mean you pull back on everything. there are things like investing in the science technology and mathematical education -- >> gretchen: the president himself said those shovel ready dreams -- do you remember on that day he said the shovel ready jobs were actually jobs that didn't work out as planned? >> well, i think overall, what was done in american recovery act, it was one of the things that helped save us from perhaps the second great depression. let's understand, today we have now created twice as many jobs in this recovery as happened under president bush in the previous recovery, even though this recovery was far deeper. we have created -- the economy created 500,000 manufacturing jobs. we haven't seen that in over 20 years. so you are totally right to suggest we have a lot further to go. that's why the president has a singular focus on the economy, on middle class jobs and making more progress. we have made progress. but we have a lot further to go for the american people for what this president wants. >> steve: we do.
4:52am
>> brian: just hard to previous we're going to print money in order to pull ourselves out of it. >> steve: gene sperling, from the white house, we're out of time now. thank you very much. we'll all be watching at 9:00 o'clock eastern right here on the fox news channel for the president's state of the union address. >> brian: straight ahead, we're on the job hunt helping viewers get back to work. cheryl casone is answering the three most asked questions next. >> gretchen: first on this day in history, 1982, "centerfold" by the jay giles band. >> steve: what happened to that [ male announcer ] in blind taste tests, even ragu users chose prego. prego?! but i've bought ragu for years.

4:57am
raytheon. >> defense company, they're hiring because it's technology. he also on his resume can get into a company with raytheon. 1400 jobs are open. >> steve: a question from karen in tempe, arizona. hi, i lost my job two years ago and became depressed and unable to work. i would like to begin looking for a job again, but i'm worried about my resume. how can i explain that yeah, good question. she can't say i was depressed. >> i was ink drinking a bottle of wine every day. you can say i took a break. i need to do think things through and maybe focus on a change and direction and i decided to do that. this is happening to so many americans during the recession. this is absolutely, steve, normal, to have gaps in your resume. most employers at this point in the process are not going to be asking about it. they're not going to be shocked to see it. if they do, just say, i took a break. i need to do think things through. simple. don't say you were depressed. >> steve: and the bottle of wine a day.
4:58am
>> i wouldn't bring up the alcohol issue either. >> steve: now people have questions, how do they get ahold of you? >> our web site. e-mails, we're going through them and answering them. companies, if you're hiring, that's also the same e-mail to let us know you're looking for employees. >> steve: you're helping a lot of people. thank you very much. >> you bet. >> steve: huge show still ahead. laura ingraham on deck, then psychic to the stars, char margolis. sports illustrated model, alyssa miller, don't miss it. we roll on live from new york city. with wholesome noodles and bite sized chicken, nothing brings you together like chicken noodle soup from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do.

5:05am
service, and their loyalty to one another. >> gretchen: before the ceremony, his son stole the show. he tried to climb up the president's podium and then made a dash for the chair where his dad was supposed to sit. >> steve: laura ingraham joins us. you're going to have to have a 15-hour unjean because you'll be with bill o'reilly before the state of the union address. >> oh, yeah. we're having fun. i'm so glad you guys featured that again, with the medal of honor recipient. >> steve: what a story. >> his humility, it stands in stark contrast to so much of what we see on the awards show, grammy awards, reality tv. look what he did. the first thing, his instinct is to give credit to others. igorot teared up when i watched that again. it's so inspiring. i feel like i don't even want to follow that because he's a true -- it's a amazing. thank you for doing that. >> brian: the other story that you probably are familiar with is that 16-page story in
5:06am
ekquire. interview with one of the seal team six guys, the guy who shot bin laden in the head a couple of times, and talks about that day and what happened since. he gets out shy of 20 years, no health benefits, no pension. and his family feels like they've been let down, as does he. but he wants to let everybody know, like all these guys basically when they get out are really on their own. does it surprise you? >> yeah, it did. phil i know was on earlier, coming out on the radio this morning. i think that, look, we all have to remember that special ops is different from other ways to serve in uniform. i'm not saying it's harder, 'cause everyone deserves enormous care and respect. but especially the navy seals, what they go through, as we know from everything we've read and the interviews we've done, what they go through and what their family goes through, it's so
5:07am
incredibly difficult. it would seem to me the president and his team were out there quickly to say how gutsy it was for the president to make the call to kill bin laden. okay. well, it's gutsy to actual will he be in that room and kill bin laden and to do what these people do. so if they're a couple of years shy of 20 years service where you get your health benefits, can't we do something for these people? i mean, can't we do something right for a change? >> steve: you know what? this guy's body is broken broken -- psychologically, he's got some problems. he's disturbed on a number of levels. completely functional, but he has problems there. his body is broken. he's been trying to work with the v.a. to get him some disability claims processed, and you know what? just as many of our viewers know right now, the v.a. system is all screwed up. there is so much red tape, it is a national disgrace. >> yeah. my father has had to use the v.a. several times.
5:08am
listen to his stories, he's a world war ii vet, so i can only imagine how frustrating it is for a relatively young man to be going through what he's going through. a number of the seals, i understand from an interview at this yesterday, conversation with a navy seal yesterday, are going to be going to capitol hill today. they're trying to break this log jam not just for the navy seal who shot bin laden, but for the entire seal and special ops community. and again, as a nation, this isn't left or right. this is right or wrong. we've got to do right by these people. all of our military. and they are the last people who should see cutbacks in their benefits or mistreatment of any kind by our system. >> brian: $60,000. here is phil bronstein who joined us earlier. >> these guys are not jason bourn. they're tough, they're resilient, resourceful. they're all sorts of things, but really they're often portrayed as kind of super human as opposed to human with great
5:09am
skills. and so i wanted to portray, through this guy, this group of people, this group of guys who do these extraordinary things that they're asked to do by the government, by all of us to keep us safe and secure and at the same time, talk about what they're not getting, kind of support they're not getting, both from the government, frankly, and the private sector. he did not get health care. he certainly didn't get health care that covered his family. he certainly didn't get pension. and he certainly didn't get protection that these guys feel might be appropriate. >> apparently there is a five-year health care program that the department of veterans affairs can give you, but this seal claims nobody ever told him about it when he decided to get out of the military. >> gretchen: the other thing i wanted to bring up, i don't know if you got the same reaction, might be the mother in me. but i could not believe the detail about how this mission was so different from the others. these guys all thought they were going to die there. what they went through as far as saying good-bye to their family and writing the letters, it

really is an incredibly emotional read and so different from the others. i think he was on 12 other missions. this one he thought he wasn't coming out of. >> right. it reminds us, gretchen, of what the 17 and 18-year-old men felt in the normandy invasion. many understood when they jumped off those landing crafts, they weren't coming back. many didn't come back. they went anyway. i think it really is a point in our history and our culture where we see a contrast and sort of the entitlement generation, the celebrity culture we live in, and then the real people who are working hard every day, whether in a factory or trying to cobble together a couple of part-time jobs or men and women in uniform who are multiple deployments and in cases of special forces, are constantly seeing their lives put in jeopardy and as you see in this article that phil wrote, broken. these people have become, in many ways broken. they're human beings and i'm so glad he said that. he's are human beings.
5:11am
they're not movie stars. they're humans and they deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and the bureaucracy needs to be recrafted or taken apart to accommodate ha they need. it's appalling. >> steve: right. you did say a number of them are going up to capitol hill. they've got to do something to fix it. meanwhile, i'm sure you were watching at the end of last week, dr. ben carson, an esteemed neurosurgeon was a keynoter at the national prayer breakfast and he used the bible to bring up some national issues, talking about the deficit, talking about how to fix health care and talking about tacks, which he talked with neil cavuto about yesterday. listen to this. >> somebody has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to, you know, the bully. there is no question that he has advocated, you know, basically a policy of tax the rich and i have advocated a policy that comes from the bible, which is a
5:12am
very fair policy of portional taxation, if it was good enough for god, why wouldn't it be good enough for us? the minute you deviate away from that, you begin to get into all kinds of biases. and one could legitimately make the argument that the rich pay too many taxes, the top 1% pays 37% of the taxes. the top 5%, 59% of the taxes. but they don't make that much of the income. one could make that argument. it depends on your philosophical disposition, which argument you're going to make. but you take those arguments away as soon as you go to a proportional tax. i believe that's the reason god did it. >> gretchen: he was also criticized for being a physician and then getting threw and talking about taxes. but he says, look, this is learned from facts and from impeercal data and being a doctor, i deal with that every single day. he thought he was the perfect person talk about facts. >> so we can have celebrities talk about fracking and all sorts of political issues, but
5:13am
we have the neurosurgeons from one of the top hospitals in the world who gets up at the national prayer breakfast and address has number of topics. but electric a common sense, very respectful fashion, he wasn't mean spirited. he wasn't nasty. but the reaction was so profound from the public, thinking why don't we have politicians who speak in these common sense terms? whatever you think about 10% taxation, put that aside, what he said about everything. what he said about the way we administer health care, what he said about the way we see government fail -- >> brian: look for excuses. >> yeah. you know what the great thing is? he was raised by a single mother in detroit and when he's asked -- i asked him yesterday, how did you make -- single mother, detroit, that's pretty tough. he said, my mother never let me blame anyone for our station in life. i was held to the same standards as the kid in the other part of
5:14am
the city who was raised and a lot of money with a lot of benefits. and i did not ever get to blame anyone. i thought that was a searing statement. stand up on your own two feet. stop the blame game. that was great. >> steve: he's fantastic. you're fantastic for joining us once a week. >> great to see you. >> steve: we'll be watching you tonight with o'reilley before the state of the union. >> fantastic. thank you. >> gretchen: could the next pope be an american? some experts say no way. it would give the united states too much power. is that true? a closer look coming up next. >> brian: we don't want to have a lot of power. brand-new development this morning, the sport that just got tossed from the olympics. it dates back to the first olympic games ever. >> steve: diskus? javelin [ emale announcer ] ready to mix things up with lean cuisine?

5:18am
pope benedict xvi would be stepping down at the end of this month. he's retiring. the first upon active to call it quits in nearly 600 years. he said i have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the ministry. now the world is wondering who will be the next pope l. it be an american? peter johnson, jr. is here with his analysis. >> it might be an american. i've got to tell you offhand, this is a dear, dear friend, cardinal dolan here in new york city is being considered as a potential success or to pope benedict. according to joe lewis of ewtn, this is really the first time that an american has been seriously considered. he's become the superstar of american catholicism and he's kind of rocked the world and so people are looking hard at cardinal dolan as a potential successor. he made jokes about it and poopooed it, but that's his man of the people style.
5:19am
but people will be looking at him at the conclave in a very serious way. >> steve: you know what? i was on-line yesterday and i looked at the odds makers, they're already trying to figure out where the next pope is going to come from. the united states way down the list because they say, you know, the united states, too much power already. we don't need to have a pope from the usa. >> the catholic church is looking at someone that understands a multi cultural society, digital technology. someone who is a people's pope. that's what we need. >> steve: that's dolan! >> benedict is known for his incisesive mind and tender heart. in some ways dolan has the same qualities. others are being looked at. maybe a half dozen. cardinal turkson of ghana would be the first in many centuries, african popes. 63. a conservative. then you go to cardinal wallet of quebec, of canada. he is a choice as well. 68 years old. speaks six different languages, was a missionary in colombia. that's important because the latin american angle of the

catholic church going forward. cardinal scola of milan. 71, known for his outreach to the muslim world and then finally, cardinal, 69 of genoa. known for attack sylvio berlusconi in italy. others, of san paolo, a lot of others. but including cardinal dolan, which is exciting for american catholics. >> steve: sure. peter, the thing is, people really loved pope john paul ii. he really energized people and he was pope for decades. the next pope probably will sit fo well. the church had public relations problems. they need a guy, if not dolan, a charismatic guy like him. >> church. the church has had public relations problems and a lot of the people in the left wing and even main stream media have piled on at this juncture of the catholic church. i see as a time for renewal, excitement. not death clouding a new pope. a new pope being chosen out of
5:21am

>> president obama's speech will focus on jobs and hopefully maybe he'll explain to us why anybody in congress still has one. that would be nice. [ laughter ] >> gretchen: that may not happen tonight. but will he offer any help to america's jobless? new polls show most voters have lost hope, unfortunately. molly henneberg live at the white house with more, a very view of the state of the union. good morning to you, molly. >> good morning, gretchen, steve and brian. the white house says the president tonight will lay out his plan to create jobs and grow the middle class. we're likely to hear him make the case to congress that more tax increases and fewer spending cuts will help generate those jobs. new fox poll suggests americans' top issue right now is the economy, but they aren't too thrilled with the president's handling of it so far. let's take a look at the first poll. the poll was taken last week over 1,000 registered voters and the issue they say they are most
5:35am
concerned about, the economy. 89% say they were extremely or very concerned about the economy. now, look down that list a little bit. tied for fourth on the list at 84%, government spending, and the job market. in the next poll, if you look at the president's job approval numbers, on specific issues, job creation, 43% approve. 52% disapprove. and on the economy, 42% approve. 55% disapprove. the president is expected to call for more money or investment, in infrastructure building projects and clean energy technology and the manufacturing sector. the president's director of the national economic council, gene sperling, contends it will help the economy. >> i don't think that laying the foundation for future growth, which is what we've done by invest not guilty basic research, and what president eisenhower did by investing in our federal highway system, is anything too, you know, discount in any way.
5:36am
what you need to do is be smart. you need to reduce spending. you need to reduce entitlement spending. but it doesn't mean you pull back on everything. >> republicans are not buying it. they don't want any more tax increases and the vice chair of the house republican caucus says the president is not seeing the whole economic picture. >> president obama hasn't recognized that we had a spending problem either. you think back to the first inaugural address and he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. bithe end of his first term and we've seen record deficits, record spending, trillion dollars-plus deficits for as long as president obama has been in office. >> and the senate republican leader, mitch mcconnell, says the president's gotten all the tax increases that he's going to get. back to you all in new york. >> gretchen: molly henneberg live at the white house today. thanks. >> brian: should be interesting to see if ted nugent will be there. he's got an invitation from a congressman and perhaps an illegal immigrant being tossed out.
5:37am
so that's going to be an interesting dynamic. >> steve: lot going on. in other headlines this morning, one day after the state of the union address, president obama once again planning to bypass congress of the he's set to issue an executive order tomorrow on what companies must do to protect computers from cyber attacks. good. he failed to get the cyber intelligence sharing and protection act passed by congress. the reason? republican party is concerned that the bill would expand the government's regulatory power and increase costs for businesses. both important concerns. >> brian: 79-year-old grandma busted for selling pot. police arrested norma chairen after finding more than nine pounds and $130,000 in cash in her house. neighbors could not believe it. they thought all the visitors were just trying to help her out. >> steve: hello. >> gretchen: parents, listen up. do you have a favorite child? according to a new study, it's not a good idea if you do. when parents pick favorites, it's not only bad for the kid that receives negative
